    Has anyone used the speed up kit for the walker mower. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Yes I have it and it does make it speed up but you will have to relearn how to control the machine because it makes the controls much more sensitive. It is not impossible to do but you will notice a difference.
    I like it but it is nowhere as fast as a Z. In some situations you can mow at "full steam ahead" with the Walker as it only is moving at about 6.5mph. Make sure you get the heavier spring with the kit also. Good Luck.
